Another "All Ye Faithful" and Sponge Ink Blending

Some of those that take classes from me are not fans of sponge ink blending, and some join with me in my love of it. This post is for those that share my enjoyment of it.

I was thinking that I may need a few more Christmas cards. I thought I was done.... So my thoughts went to the "All Ye Faithful" stamp set.

My sponge ink blending is a little rougher looking this time, but I think it's OK. I really like blues and silver and went with Night Of Navy this time. In this next photo. I decided to hold it so that the light would shore more of the Dazzling Details I used inside the silver embossed figures.

The only thing that I popped up is the silver oval frame for Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. I wanted them to stand out more.

I kept the inside fair simple and heat embossed the sentiment. Normally I like to leave more room for writing inside a card, but for Christmas I usually don't write as much inside so it works out fine.

There's something special about the look and size of cards that fit the business sized envelope (9 1/2" x 4 1/8"). I make the card at 9" x 4" (cut at 9" x 8" and score at 4" to fold in half).

Hope you are inspired to create this size of card.

Happy Stamping!
